Artist's Way: Week 4

Well, I did it! I filled up a sketchbook! I have never done this before, and I am incredibly proud of myself. I find myself working in sketchbooks and usually about a third of the way through, I look back on what I have done, think it is crap and never look at it again. I buy a new one and the cycle starts over. I finally filled one up with my morning pages. This is progress. I know I can do it now. I don't have to love every line I put down, I just have to get it done so I can move forward. Go me! I'm going to get myself a new sketchbook as a reward and I am genuinely excited about filling it up!

This is Reading Deprivation Week, according to the schedule. I am a reader! I spend lots of time reading about art & entreprenuership for ideas for myself. I read magazines about vegetarian eating and yoga. I read blogs. I'm reading a book about the history of vanilla. I read message boards about crafting. I love to read. I'm not sure how this will help me move forward but I'm going to do it. As a result, I will be spending significantly less time on the interenet this week.

Two tasks struck me as really exciting projects to do with my newly freed-up non-reading time:

1. Make a special, private environment for yourself. I already know what I want to do! I just need to get a floor pillow. I have been working on making my studio a safe haven for me, and this will be a fantastic next step. I'll put up some sketches or photos later this week!

2. Plan an extended artist date. Also fun! I think this will start with me going to the InterGem show in the morning, but I don't know what will happen next!
